EdCog Journal Club

Would you like to join a lively group of faculty, staff, and students for a weekly meeting to discuss a journal article related to Education & Cognition?
 
This year, we're trying something different. Our Fall 2020 semester will consist of bi-weekly meetings focusing on core topics in the field of Education Cognition. 
Our Winter semester will remain similar to past years - more complex, cutting edge research. 
This will allow new researchers to join us and learn about the fundamentals of the field in the Fall and be contributing members of the Journal Club in the Winter.
Are you an expert in the field? We would love to have you join in the Fall semester to discuss these fundamentals will new learners. 
 
We will be holding all Fall 2020 meetings on Thursdays at 12:30pm.
